Forms and Applications

During the 2023-24 school year East Rochester Schools will be implementing meals at no cost for all students through a New York State Community Eligibility Provision approved in the recent State Budget. Please be aware that this includes one breakfast and one lunch every day but does not apply to a la carte items and additional meals.

Households are still asked to fill out an application, as the information collected in these applications are used by the district for purposes that extend beyond meals, including both family and the district’s eligibility for additional funding opportunities. Applications are included in the printed calendar and here

Once the application has been filled out, it can be mailed to East Rochester Schools, 222 Woodbine Avenue, East Rochester, NY 14445. If you choose not to mail the application back to us, you are welcome to hand deliver it to the District Office Monday - Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. or drop it off at the Main Office of your child’s school and they will send it to the Food Service Office.

Why should you fill out an application for the 2023-24 school year?
Even if your child chooses to bring their own lunch, filling out the form is very important! It ensures that your school gets all of the funding and benefits available to support teachers and students. Also, even if your child does not eat school lunch, students who qualify for free lunch also can receive other benefits like:

- Access to future P-EBT benefits if they become available
- Possible discounts for your family on applicable service-based vendor programs
- Reduced fees for SAT and ACT tests and college applications
- Reduced fees for AP exams

How does filling out the Multipurpose Family Income Form help my school?
- Schools may become eligible for money to fund after school programs
- Schools get more money in their budgets to support students
